  • About

    Having created installations for Cartier (2014) and White Night Melbourne (2015), French video virtuosos Antoine et Manuel are expert world builders who have created wondrous landscapes out of light projections that have stunned crowds the world over.

    In this mesmerizing premiere, Australia’s character will be brought into sharp focus in an absolute visual treat…

    The work titled ANIMAL will see the The University of Adelaide’s historic Barr Smith Library be transformed with a light, sound and video installation that captures the beauty of Australia as experienced by someone who’s seeing it for the very first time. Journey through underwater reefs, jungle landscapes, get up close to the blistering Australian sun and even become immersed in a living human body. In turns breathtakingly beautiful, poignant and playful, ANIMAL will show you Australia as you’ve never seen it before.
